Sweet Jennys is all around the best place around to take mom out to eat. Such a friendly restaurant with awesome breakfast lunch and dinner that mom would love to eat! After all.. that means she doesn't have to cook! Plus, with Sweet Jenny's portion sizes mom probably wont have to cook for the entire week.. Sweet Jennys for the win!!!

the brunch spot is my favorite place to eat, the quaint and friendly environment is the best and the waitress there is always so nice! I will be sure to go there on mothers day!

The Brunch Spot is really cozy and intimate and all over adorable. Staff is out of this world polite and friendly, and the food is incredible. I especially loved the monte cristo. I went there with my husband and daughter a few weeks ago and it was a wonderful experience. I will absolutely be going there for Mother's Day this year!

I went to the Brunch Spot with my wife about a month ago. The waitress took good care of us and the food was really good. I liked the Tuscan Frittata.

Id go anywhere BUT sweet jennys! The food is over priced, "management" is horrific and the owner is self centered and ignorant! The staff that takes most credit for things and "manage" take advantage of other staff and have them to pick up the lazy slack of management. That place has fallen apart since some key staff members left and it will never be what it used to be! Sorry but wish no luck to them and hope you all spend your hard earned money somewhere that deserves it!

The Brunch Spot is hands down my choice for Mother's Day. The environment is so warm and inviting. The staff are eager to help and provide you with what you need before you can even ask for it. Aside from the environment and the staff, the food is simply delicious. It comes out hot and fresh every time with no complaints. Just thinking about the food is making me salivate. Every item on the menu that I have tried has been phenomenal and I will be a "regular" at the Brunch Spot. I give it two thumbs, a place not to miss out on! YUM!!!!

Sweet Jenny's is by far the best! Can't wait to enjoy the food and wonderful service. Joe truly loves what he does and you can see that by how he greats his guested and the quality of the food he serves.

Sounds like you have a vendetta towards Sweet Jenny's... Or an ex-employee out for revenge. I have had the pleasure dining there numerous times and NEVER did I had an unpleasant experience. Every server has been kind and the chef comes out sometimes to see if everyone is enjoying the food. I loved them when they were on rt 9 and I love them now. Just by the fact you have your name "unidentified" says a lot. I do enjoy some of the other places mentioned in this survey as well, But Sweet Jenny's does not deserve such a harsh comment. Grow up!
Marianne May 04, 2012 at 01:23 PM
Sweet Jenny's is my favorite of the choices - Good Luck to all :)
Jessica May 04, 2012 at 04:24 PM
Sweet Jenny's hands down gets my vote!! Such a fantastic environment with the best staff! Everyone always wears their smile with instantly puts you into a great mood as soon as you walk into the door! Add that with their absolutely amazing food for breakfast, lunch, & dinner makes this contest a no brainer! Was just in there the other night and saw the Mother's Day entrees they were offering and they all sound great!! Mom would love you forever if you showered her with some Sweet Jenny's love! Don't forget to end the day with a sundae! :o)
unidentified May 04, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Not an ex employee, just knows what goes on behind the scenes there and im sure if you did you would never eat there again! Keep enjoying the filth though you obviously like it :)
breanna May 05, 2012 at 12:29 PM
Have been to sweet jenny's several times! Food is fabulous as is the man behind the menu! A true family run restaurant that has no shortage of hospitality and caring! They get my vote! To all readers please ingnore the unidentified ignoramus they clearly must be mistaken or confused and in this horrible day in age possibly under the influence of some kind of mind altering substance. Poor thing i pray they get help soon.

Sweet Jenny's is by far the best. Great food, great service, and all our local friends all in a historic building in downtown Barnegat. History continues!
